Researching the DRAKE/EASTMAN/SMITH line on my mother's side; and the EARP/TRENT line on my father's side.

Please feel free to take any PICTURES I have posted, I would never join a sharing community and not share. The people on here will purposely push your buttons. They are mean-spirited bullies. They most likely are playing the victim, they are good at that. They hide behind their diagnosis, but I'm ADHD with PTSD, and hard to drop. Let me know if they are bothering you, I will smear them all over my FaceBook.

I have done some work in the past for the Weymouth Historical Society finding the soldiers from Weymouth. I am not a board member of the Weymouth Historical Society, nor do I represent the Weymouth Historical Society in any way. I did make the orig website and updated the "approved" seal for the Weymouth Historical Society. If you want the seal placed back on your soldier's profile, please contact Debbie Sargent-Sullivan at the Weymouth Historical Society.

The genweb files for the Greene County, New York cemeteries was renamed to http://tracingyourrootsgcny.com/town.

4 Sep 2019: Forgotten Books is a London-based book publisher who put a 2016 copyright on many books (exact date not known), made them public, look but don't touch. I do not know what their affiliation with Google is (who is also London-based), but Google disconnected their search function on the books (Aug 2019) that possibly aren't copyrighted. I'm just seeing it now, appears that Forgotten Books/copyright had been hidden or not known until now. Do not touch them, take what you need, leave the rest.
What I have found out about Copp's Hill, Boston:

New North Burying Ground, Small Ground - On 18 Dec 1809, Capt Jonathan Merry donated a patch of land called Jonathan Merry's Pasture to Copp's Hill for burials. This land was called "New North Burying Ground" and latter called "Small Ground". This land is aligned with Hull St. John Richardson was the first burial 6 Jul 1810 after drowning the day before with the interment tomb being referred to as tomb 1 by the carriers.

Hull St. Cemetery (old) - Was a footpath on Snowhill St leading from Hull St to Charter St. Interments were discontinued in 1853 and all burials were removed Feb 1861 to Mount Hope Cemetery, Mattapan.

Hull Street Cemetery (New/other) - South-east of Small Ground, 55 tombs were built in 1814 by Hon. Charles Wells. This land is facing Hull St and is where the gun house for the Columbian Artillery used to stand. Edward Bell built 15 additional tombs in 1827 on this parcel of land.

Charter St Burying Ground - In 1819 Hon. Charles Wells built 34 tombs in between this new land and the old land, facing Charter St. This land was referred to as "Charter St. Burying Ground."

All of these lands are inside of Copp's Hill; so if you find a Charter St. burial with a tomb number, you can put the profile in Copp's Hill, and in the "Plot" section, you can put what info you have, ie. tomb 4, Charter St.
